Currently Senior Instructor of Japanese in the Department of East Asian Languages and Civilizations at the University of Colorado, Boulder, http://www.colorado.edu/ealld. Her main interest is in the affective aspects of language learning. She is also interested in theory and practice of translation.
One thing that became obvious in foreign language pedagogy last century was that the learner was an intelligent, sentient being who had the ability to determine how and what to learn. However, up to this day, the design and execution of classroom instruction doesn't alwasy reflect this obvious revelation. At this benkyoukai, I would like participants to consider exploring various ways to implement learner autonomy in their classrooms.
